Melina and Sam at Saddlerock Ranch Malibu

We created a wedding a few weeks ago at Saddle Rock Ranch in the Malibu Mountains for a fantastic couple.

The bride carried a gorgeous bouquet of  gardenias, lavender, and ‘Bowl of Cream’ Peonies with a collar of magnolia foliage.

We specially fly in this unusual variety of Peony from Oregon. It’s large off-white flower head continues to unfold it’s petals getting larger and larger.

The bridesmaids held nosegays of lavender herb with a Dusty Miller and Galax leaf collar.

They were married in front of an old Weeping Willow under a rustic canopy swagged with cream tapestry fabric and garlands of olive branches, magnolia and Vendela roses.

Paper cones filled with rose petals were tied to the back of the chairs.

There were long wooden tables with linen runners and tall vases filled with asymmetrical Calla lilies bouquets. Clusters of mercury glass with candles and flowers filled the centers of the tables.

The round tables had tall vases filled with white Eremurus or Fox-tail Lily.

Each napkin was topped by a sprig of lavender and olive foliage tied with a craft paper cording.

Chandeliers and strands of lights were suspended from the oak trees that framed the dance floor creating  a magical evening of dancing.

Mercury glass lanterns led guests to a mini-doughnut stand before leaving for the evening.

I would like to thank Susan Bordelon for sharing these fantastic images of the wedding. Susan is a master in her field and gets unbelievable images in such a short amount of time.  She is a delight to work with.

I really love Susan’s signature silhouette shot of Melina and Sam.
